FAT TUESDAY: Gorge on Fat Books and Soup

Join us for our first ever "FAT TUESDAY" celebration -- ALL FAT Books are on sale PLUS (get this. You will not believe it) come by between the hours of 11am to 5 pm for soup and bread. FREE! Free Soup and Bread while supplies last.

What, you might ask, is a fat book? Well, my staff and I discussed what constitutes a "FAT" book and we have decided that anything over 500 pages is a fat book. How much would you save on a fat book you might ask? Hmm . . . how does a penny a page sound -- with a maximum of 25% savings? How does that work you might ask (Boy . .  . you do  ask a lot of questions don't you?). For all the English majors out there THAT IS $5 for 500 page books.  The fatter the book the more you save. HOW FUN!

And then, of course, there is SOUP and BREAD. FAT TUESDAY is like going to be even more AWESOME because everything is better with books.

It's Story Time again!

Join us for story time with Clare Super, our Super story
time person.

Story time is geared for ages 4-7 but all ages are welcome.
I am 54 and I love to go to story time. You are never too old or too young for
storytime .

We also offer a free snack and an activity that is often
geared toward the season or holiday.  For
instance, we don’t go caroling in March. We do this in May.
